Sony made several announcements about new and updated products, including confirming that the U.S. release of the PlayStation 4 is November 15th and that the mobile PlayStation Vita is getting a refreshed look, but the big news concerned a small streaming micro console called the PlayStation Vita TV. The device has several roles in the home entertainment setup; on the one hand, it’s a streaming set-top box not unlike Roku or Apple TV, and you can watch “movies, TV shows, and video services” on it. It also serves as a lightweight gaming console, and you can actually pop in PS Vita, PSP, and PSPOne games and play them with full controllers on the big screen. Further, it features... Read more...
Sony’s upcoming PlayStation 4 will support voice commands and facial recognition through its PlayStation 4 Camera peripheral. Unlike the Microsoft’s Kinect camera, which is standard issue with the Xbox One, Sony’s camera will be sold separately--or taken another way, optionally. A Sony Entertainment spokesperson told Polygon, "Sony Computer Entertainment can confirm that PlayStation Camera allows for voice recognition and we will look forward to sharing more details in the lead up to the launch of PlayStation 4 on November 29." The camera is listed on Amazon for $59.96, and the description says that the it will include functions “from navigational commands to facial recognition”,... Read more...

Ever since Microsoft announced the Xbox One, the company has been dealing with a good bit of blowback for some of the features of the new console, including the requirement for an online “check in” every 24 hours; a required, always-on Kinect (that costs an extra $100 to boot); and the inability to sell used games, among some other PR black eyes. It didn’t help when Sony released a funny video mocking the Xbox One’s sharing capabilities. Microsoft has backed down on most of those, but in the meantime it was easy to forget that the Xbox One was going to enjoy 15 exclusive titles that included 8 new game franchises. That’s a win, right? It would be, were it not for... Read more...
For all the hullabaloo surrounding the respective launches of the Microsoft Xbox One and Sony PlayStation 4 (in which we’ve taken part), there was always going to be a time when sales numbers would tell the story. We’re not there yet by any means, but there is some indication that the PlayStation 4 might be leading its competition: Preorders for the PlayStation 4 (Launch Edition) are sold out on Amazon. Meanwhile, the Xbox One (Day One Edition) remains available. Of course, we must take all of this with a grain of salt, because we don’t know how many units each company was readying for preorder, but Amazon shows the PS4 as a top seller ahead of the Xbox One, for what that’s worth. Further, after... Read more...
John Riccitiello is the former CEO of EA, and after all the recent chaos that led to him leaving his post, you’d think he’d keep a low profile for a while. However, he’s resurfaced again with an op-ed at Kotaku concerning the upcoming Xbox and PlayStation consoles wherein he cautions Microsoft and Sony about maintaining a certain focus on gaming with these devices. “I certainly see the temptation to emphasize all sorts of experiences that these boxes might bring to the living room. These new machines can do a lot”, he wrote. “The risk is that either or both of the new platforms emphasize these ‘value-add’ experiences too much, both in the user interface... Read more...
We knew that Sony had a PlayStation 4 brewing, and we knew a little something about the upcoming gaming console’s specifications, but now we know when we’ll know all the juicy details. In a teaser trailer for the PS4, Sony indicated that the big reveal will take place on June 10th at 6pm PDT at E3. The trailer itself leaves something to be desired, to say the least. It’s a short spot, and we see a blurry black box in the background that we never get to see in focus, and there are spliced-in bits showing closeups of the PlayStation 4 that don’t really tell us anything. (It will have some Christopher Nolan-era Batmobile-type angles, and at least part of it will have a sort... Read more...
